Deep Sounds from the Garden Pond

Sorry for having blogged of late but we have been away and both ended up with a nasty cold virus which we have now both recovered from so hopefully we can get back to normal.  So we will catchup on posts over the next few days hopefully, but for now a short blog from earlier in the week
Our small garden Pond
This last week it suddenly came to Jackie's notice that we had a couple of Frogs and a few Palmate Newts  in the pond.  Next day we had a little frog spawn and even more frogs, in fact our peek count was ten pairs.

Over the next few days all we could hear was a continuous deep croaking from the pond and every morning more spawn would appear.  Until today when there was only spawn and all the frogs seem to have gone.

Below is a sound recording of what we were hearing. Also you can hear Goldfinch sounds as they came and went from our feeding station.

Frog spawn and you can just make out a Palmate Newt having breakfast
